Pink Tea cups and animal prints for Pink Saturday

Merry Christmas Bloggerettes!   I've been wanting to make a tea cup candlelabra for a long time.  I just couldn't find the right tea cups.  I wanted pink and pretty.  Well, I finally found five matching teacups and saucers in a local thrift.  And the best part is that they are pink!!!

I took an old ugly brass chandelier, pulled out all the wiring, spray painted it  heirloom white and tada!!!
I then used a heavy duty ceramic glue and glued the cups to the saucers and then the entire piece to the chandelier.

As soon as I get it hung up in my booth I'll show you a better picture.
It met with Gabby's approval.

I think every room needs a little bit of animal print, don't you?
I made this pillow and decided it looks perfect here on the chair.

I'll probably keep this one, at least for a little while.  I do get tired of things rather quickly.  Mr. Sissie says that he doesn't know how I've kept him around for 36 years!

I'm leaving you with a sweet picture of my great niece.
Isn't she sugar pink sweet.

I wish you peppermint kisses, marshmallow hugs and
sugar plum dreams.

Have a beautiful Christmas my sweet blogging friends.


I'm linking up to Pink Saturday.  Be sure and stop by to see all the pretty Pink Saturday Christmas posts.

Your blog is so fun! I think I have the matching platter from the thrift shop as well to the teacups on the new chandy! How neat is your chandy? One of my sayings Sissie, is every room can use a little leopard. But now I have to update that saying, and say animal print, because there are so many more options. merry christmas!

Sweet Sissie,
Love your pink Saturday post, but most of all I wanted to come wish my favorite gal a Merry Christmas. The little monsters are finally in bed asleep, we're stuffed from a meal of beef tenderlion, & now Momma's about to call it a day. But not before telling me Sissie Godnight, sleep tight, & Santa will visit by morning. Lisa

I get to scroll down each day at my favorite places to visit and no matter how bad the day is or has been, when I am finished with my visits......I am smiling. Thanks for always having something beautiful and wondrous to share. I know that it is quite a task, but you do it so beautifully. Merry Christmas to you and your family. Bless you for the new year.

Hey there! Quick question that's totally off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My web site looks weird when browsing from my apple iphone. I'm trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to
resolve this issue. If you have any recommendations, please share.
With thanks!

I drop a comment whenever I especially enjoy a article on a site or if I have something to valuable to contribute
to the discussion. It's a result of the fire displayed in the article I browsed. And on this article "Pink Tea cups and animal prints for Pink Saturday". I was actually moved enough to leave a comment :-) I actually do have some questions for you if you do not mind. Is it simply me or do a few of the responses come across like they are left by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are posting on other sites, I would like to follow you. Would you make a list all of your communal pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
